Cash property goes on market

Thursday, November 17, 2016 – Johnny and June Carter Cash's lakefront Tennessee property is for sale, it was reported today.

The Hendersonville, Tenn. property was the home that Carter and Cash shared for nearly all of their 35-year marriage. No price was given for the property.

"In my mind it would be some person (who) is a huge Johnny Cash fan," said the seller in a story in the Wall Street Journal.

Highlighted in the film "Walk The Line," the home was where the star retreated for his 1960 detox, where Kris Kristofferson landed his helicopter in a plea for Cash's attention and where Bob Dylan, Billy Graham, Al Gore and former President Ronald Reagan visited. It's also where Cash hosted "guitar pulls," informal jams in the late '60s and early '70s and where he sat for his final music video ""Hurt.""

The house burned down in 2007. Barry Gibb of Bee Gees fame owned the house as well.

The current owner, who was not named, is "selling due to health issues, would prefer it goes to buyer who would like to preserve legacy of Johnny and June Carter Cash," Cash's publicist said. The owner finished an apartment remodel in what was Cash and Carter's wardrobe room. Originally, it was a three car garage that they converted to a wardrobe room.

Man In Black: Live in Denmark 1971 CD review - Man In Black: Live in Denmark 1971
Like many icons who have since departed the planet, Johnny Cash left behind a legacy that continues to flourish - in the songs he left behind, in their interpretation by others and in the man's own recordings, which still sound as fresh and vital as they were when first released. This vintage concert offers a case in point. Recorded at the peak of his prowess, it finds him replaying his classic hits - "A Boy Named Sue," "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line" »»»
Out Among the Stars CD review - Out Among the Stars
One would think that with all the archival music, reissues and postmortem tributes released on Johnny Cash's behalf, the vaults would have been scraped pretty clean by now, with only scraps left for dedicated completists to feast upon. So it comes as no small surprise to find that the Cash archivists actually uncovered some entire sessions that haven't been unearthed until now. Recorded in the early '80s, "Out Among The Stars" is such a high quality collection that it »»»
